The Novice Driver Program (NDP) Trial Process Evaluation

The Novice Driver Program is a robust multi-component intervention that will use an adult education approach to change the on-road behaviour of young novice drivers in such a way as to reduce their crash risk. Before it is rolled out nationally, the NDP is to undergo a) a Quantitative Outcome Evaluation in Victoria (led by MUARC researchers); and b) a Process Evaluation in NSW. The Process Evaluation for which the UNSW researchers are responsible aims, in newly licensed drivers 18-22 years of age, to identify the practical issues that may need to be resolved in order to implement a nationwide program for your novice drivers. Specifically, to:

  • Evaluate delivery processes;
  • Identify issues relevant to nationwide implementation; and
  • Assess willingness of young novice drivers to participate in this type of program.
